    Cousin atrax splice how to

    So I've done this on a fair few different ropes. Ive had to modify taper and reductions for each one based of cover core calculations. Some numbers arent avaliable so ive had to base my calculations off measurements which is a bit finecky. I wouldn't recommend this for a climbing line due to...

    Cousin atrax splice how to

    Tapering the jacket a couple strands shortly after the eye mark by a few strands is what cousin do from what i can tell to have the 300mm section a bit thinner. 4 strands shortly after the eye and 8 strands at the main taper.

    Cousin atrax splice how to

    I personally do not like the splice and don't do it for customers. Will do it for friends who are insistent but would not do it on my own ropes. It is a personal choice. The splices patent does not specify a brand or exact diameter of cordage acceptabe, but a range if memory serves correctly. I...
